VANESSA MEGAN founded in 2009 Australia, and products were born from Vanessa’s best friend’s phrase: "You should never put anything on your skin that you wouldn't eat''. Every single product is designed to meet the uncompromising standard of this statement: We won’t eat chemicals and we won’t eat mineral oils, parabens, PEGs, artificial preservatives, colours or fragrances and we certainly won’t feed them to you through the skin. None of those harmful ingredients are in any of the products they make. Do care about the customers, they are trying to educate more people across the country and around the world about what they can do to have healthy and beautiful skin. As skin is the largest organ of your body and taking care of it helps to keep the rest of you healthy too. Remember, your skin is permeable, so whatever you put on your skin can enter your body, and they firmly believe that natural, non-industrial ingredients are very important for your health. Vanessa Megan only use the finest quality natural and organic ingredients.
Packaging is designed to minimise waste and is 100% recyclable.

HELENA LANE Over the last 10 years I have seen the natural and organic skincare industry become more and more complicated; ingredient lists are getting longer as the ingredients are getting more refined and processed, as companies strive to make the products easier and cheaper to manufacture. These highly processed natural ingredients can be as un-beneficial as the synthetic ones whilst misleading consumers into thinking they are getting the real thing. We now understand that good food for our bodies is unprocessed and nutrient-rich. I believe this is also true for the food for our skin. I try not to put “junk” into my body, so why would I put it on my skin? I want you to do less to your skin. I believe most people use too many products with too many ingredients, too often. This interferes with the skin’s own processes of growth and repair, which long-term, causes the skin to deteriorate and become unbalanced. My skincare respects our own natural processes of rejuvenation and encourages our skin to work for itself again; the aim is to use fewer products over time not more, and not to rely on products to make our skin look good.
My formulations have only a few ingredients but ones that are richest in nutrients for our skin. I have chosen only unrefined, unprocessed, natural and certified organic ingredients. I’ve been reading ingredient labels for years and still get overwhelmed! I want you to read my labels and truly understand what is going onto your skin and therefore into your body. ~from Helena Lane, Canada

Biotyspa « Many beauty brands focus solely on aesthetics, using slimming creams and tools while neglecting internal lymph drainage. True to the philosophy of the Spa, the Active Slim treatment is a bona fide lymphatic and circulatory stimulant: a natural slimming solution that works both locally and internally. We recommend four courses a year, one at the beginning of each season, so as not to let cellulite and fats settle back into their usual areas. » Deborah - Founder of Biotyspa

CARELIA was founded in 2013 as a result of the concerns of its director and founder, Inés Navas,for the full health care, safety and welfare of her daughters Carla and Claudia.
Ines, aware of the importance of skin care for the smallest kids, would offer her own daughters the best natural product, free of harmful substances. And that's how they developed a line of shampoo and shower gel, moisturizing body lotion and cologne able to care for natural and deep skin for their daughters, while providing them the pleasure of a smooth and lasting fragrance in their memory. In Carelia, affection and protection served as premise throughout its development, incorporating the healthiest active ingredients possible for sensitive skin care .

We pay attention to everything we do - from formulating our products with sustainable raw ingredients, sourcing from local Canadian responsible companies, to designing our packaging to be minimalist and biodegradable. We bring you responsible products that are a joy to use. We believe positive changes happen at the grassroots level. It is ordinary people making conscious decisions in everyday lives that shape our future.

We want you to know the people behind our products by collaborating with local Canadian companies and sharing their stories. We strive to run Pep Soap with honesty and transparency. It is not easy to stand out in a very crowded market place, but we think those who pay attention will notice.By sharing our beliefs, it is our hope to encourage consumers like you to stay conscious and curious. Ask questions and demand more from manufacturers and retailers. We can make a difference, one bar at a time." ~from Pep Soap, Canada
When we are lucky enough to be born in an affluent part of the world it should be our duty to take care of the less fortunate. Many children will never own any oral care products and we’re depleting natural resources and filling up the oceans with used products.
Can we change our ways of production and consumption? Can we help provide oral care products to those that need it most? The answer is yes!
As a dentist, The Humble Co. was founded to create products that are good for you and kind to our planet. Every Humble purchase goes towards funding projects for the benefit of children in need
